The last two weeks have been, in the words of my brother’s generation, an EPIC FAIL. Not only am I still flipping sick, but in a seriously misguided and ill-judged attempt to stretch the meager food left in our fridge so I can use this week’s grocery money for next week’s Thanksgiving feast, I made chicken tacos with some chicken meat leftover from making stock. But I forgot to label the meat, and I forgot to mentally do the math and see how old it was, the result of it all that being that the Ogre and I spent the morning throwing up. Luckily the children, of course, refused to eat it.
So not only is the house still a disaster but my grand plans for pre-cooking and freezing parts of our feast went right out the window. I haven’t even had a chance to practice pumpkin pie. Sometimes I just want my mommy. But even though the house is a wreck and instead of cleaning I spent the morning puking and laughing at autocorrect fails, I’m determined not to let quick takes Friday pass me by. For lack of a better subject matter and because I want a platform to show off some funny cartoons I found, this week I’m going to eloquently explain a decision that causes no end of consternation and embarrassment among my family and friends.
